Bug#1000239: Rescue system won't find root partition, but insists on /usr



Le 09/12/2021 à 23:29, TomK a écrit :

If there is a /usr partition, /usr/share will be part of it. So,
separate /usr/share is exactly as common s/as separate /usr.

No, by "separate /usr/share" I (and Philip I guess, please correct me if I am wrong) mean "separate from /usr".

/usr/share has architecture independent files which are architecture
independent only because they are not binaries. No documentation is
architecture dependent!

/usr/share does not contain only documentation, but also shell scripts and data files for many programs.

Is it a problem if /home or /usr/share are left unmounted during rescue?

/usr/share contains architecture-independent files for many programs
such as bash, grub, os-prober, debconf, dpkg, initramfs-tools...

How common is it to have a separate /usr/share and what is the rationale
for it ?
